Rolls Royce Corniche first registered:10-07-1972. Engine size: 6750cc. Colour: Gold. Engine Number: 12865. Chassis Number: DRH 12865 V5C present. First introduced in 1971, the Corniche remained the ultimate 1970s and 1980s status symbol of wealth and success, the Rolls- Royce Corniche was a car sought after by many but one only the fortunate few could afford. The Corniche draws its name from the French and Italian term for a Corniche, a coastal road, especially along the face of a cliff, most notably the Grande Corniche along the French Riviera above the principality of Monaco. Rolls-Royce’s final coach- built models were entrusted to the company’s in-house coachbuilder, Mulliner Park Ward. These two-door cars were hand built in the best traditions of British coachbuilding, using only materials of the finest quality, including Wilton carpeting, Connolly hides and Burr Walnut veneers, a necessarily lengthy process that took all of 20 weeks for the saloon and slightly longer for the more complex convertible. This painstaking attention to detail resulted in a price some 50% higher than the standard Silver Shadows. Offered is an impeccable example of this fantastic motor car finished in gold metallic and unmarked chrome, in original and untouched in every respect, apart from evidence of a professional repaint sometime in its lifetime, showing a genuine 30, 000 miles and has evidence of some very interesting and well- known previous owners. The term ‘time warp’ is often misused but sitting in this wonderful vehicle is as close to revisiting 1972 as humanly possible and to make the experience even more authentic she has a working eight-track audio system complete with period tapes. On close inspection every panel is as it should be, paintwork is factory standard and unblemished. The hood is in fabulous condition with its mechanism working as it should, door shut is positive and reassuringly precise. The car starts immediately and the haunting Rolls-Royce 6. 7 litre engine purrs silently. This stunning Corniche 2 has been fastidiously looked after since it left Crewe in 1972 and remains in the most incredible preserved condition. To many these cars still seem way undervalued compared with some very overrated classics on the market, however Rolls- Royce are currently one of the few marque still seeing very healthy price increases year on year. An almost identical car is at present on offer through an Edinburgh dealer priced at £120, 000. I am seeking a more realistic figure of £85, 000 for my pristine vehicle. Contact for further details.
